Minor differences: Truett and Kirsten

When you have more than one kid, you realize how minor differences can sometimes make all the difference in the world.

#1: Kirsten using tears as leverage – extremely effective

The kids are playing and Tru reaches out to snatch a toy out of his sister’s hands.

Kirsten: That’s mine!

Tru: I take. You let me play a while ok?

Kirsten: No. I need the toy, you give me?

Tru: You must share, mei mei.

Kirsten: I’m going to cry. (proceeds to opens her mouth)

Tru: (clasps one hand over he mouth while shoving the toy back with the other hand) Ok ok, I give it back.

#2: Truett using tears as leverage – not quite so effective

The kids are playing and Kirsten reaches out to snatch a toy out of her brother’s hands.

Tru: You cannot snatch!

Kirsten: It’s mine!

Tru: I was playing first, you give it back.

Kirsten: No.

Tru: I’m going to cry, ok.

Kirsten: Ok, you cry. I take tissue for you.


#1: Kirsten playing with toys

Kirsten: Duck duck, you close your eyes and sleep, I cover blankie for you.

#2: Truett playing with toys

Tru: Mommmmm, my train is broken.

Me: How did you manage to break it? It’s made of wood.

Tru: The train had an accident. I threw it on the floor.


#1: Kirsten on going to school

Kirsten: I like to go to school – I play toys, sing songs, eat rice and chicken. I feed myself very well!

#2: Truett on going to school

Truett: I got no school today right, mommy?

Me: Today’s Thursday, sweetheart, there is school today.

Truett: I think I’m not feeling well, I need to see the doctor.

    Haha…they are so adorable. Really can see their personality differences through their responses. Sounds like Tru is going thru the “School is boring, cos there is no time to play’ syndrome. Kyle dislike school as well citing the above reason, don’t know what is it with boys and attending school.
